- Onyx now has a Java API. At work we were building a new system and looked very seriously at Onyx. We talked with Michael Drogalis and Lucas Bradstreet and found them to be very knowledgable and professional to work with. I’d highly recommend putting Onyx on your shortlist if you need to do analytics, CQRS, or anything that works with streaming data.
Libraries & Books.
- Ataraxy is an experimental data-driven Ring routing library from James Reeves. Think Compojure, but with data instead of macros.
- test2junit 1.3.0 is out
